Marcel Mouly Paris, 1918 – 2008. His primary studies were at the Montparnasse 80 of Paris with Andre Auclair. In 1938 he was called into the navy and served in the Navy. In 1940 he was arrested and imprisoned at Fresnes by the Germans as a spy. He was released in 1941 and was loved by Pignon and Lipchitz and took residence in their studios. His mentor Burtin is pleased to submit to the Salon of Young Painters and one of his first presentations by the French government. Marcel Mouly’s paintings are in numerous museums in Shanghai and Hong Kong. Over 20 museums list his work in 12 countries.
